Emergency resilience project awarded at state Resilient Australia Awards
Adelaide Hills Council’s Towards Community Led Emergency Resilience project has received the Resilient Australia Local Government award at the South Australian Resilient Australia Awards.
The awards, managed by the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience, celebrate initiatives that build whole of community resilience to disasters and emergencies and recognise collaboration and innovative thinking.
The project supports communities to prepare for bushfires and other emergencies, taking learnings from bushfire events that have affected the Adelaide Hills district, in particular Sampson Flat, Cudlee Creek and Cherry Gardens.
Council would also like to extend our congratulations to the Charleston Community Centre who took out the South Australian Resilient Australia Community Award.
State winners will be considered at the national Resilient Australia Awards later this year.
The Towards Community led Emergency Resilience project is funded by the Australian Government through the Black Summer Bushfire Recovery grant and Preparing Australian Communities Grant, and by the State Government through Wellbeing SA.
